Mary Neh's story

Mary Neh is a married mother of five with whom she lives in a six-bedroom apartment in Bafut, North West Region of Cameroon. She has faced some challenges in life, such as the death of loved ones and sickness, among other family problems.

She joined GHAPE in 2010 and has successfully repaid four loans. With the new loan, she plans to increase size of her farm lands by increasing the use of fertilizers to enhance yields. Part will be invested in her petit trading business in shoes of all sizes and both genders, while part will be invested in her piggery by adding to her number of pigs.

Mary Heh has a positive attitude that the business will succeed because she already has a mastery of these activities and there's a constant demand for her produce.

She says her activity will help the community as it brings more produce closer to customers and there will be an increased food supply in the community.

With the profit from the loan, Mary Neh will plough back some into her activities, pay her children’s school fees and provide basic necessities for the family.

She prefers a loan from GHAPE because the repayment schedule is moderate, collateral isn't required, interest rates are low and she gets valuable business knowledge before receiving loans,
